Product Features


This orthopedic support device includes the following features:

  • The brace is built from a slim pair of rigid shells, placed on either side of the ankle with a connecting segment beneath the heel, and a pair of wide Velcro straps hold the sides in place.
  • The medical grade tricot brushed filler provides sufficient padding and airflow around the ankles, without adding the large bulk of larger air filled bladders on other models.
  • The lite ankle brace is a universal size, and can be used ambidextrously on either ankle, on a person of any size and either gender.
  • The sides of this brace are tall, providing extra support for the vulnerable ankle area.

What Buyers Like About the Air Lite Ankle Brace

Buyers enjoy these features of the orthopedic support:

  • Considering its slim profile, this brace provides a remarkable amount of support for an ankle recovering from sprain or strain. It prevents the foot and ankle from rolling and twisting, and can be used during athletic events or workouts, as well as throughout the course of the regular day.
  • The cushioning at the sides of the ankle helps to prevent edema and swelling around the injured ankle when the brace is strapped in place.
  • This brace can be worn over any type of socks, and inside any type of shoes, and its lightly padded sides keep it comfortable for the user.
  • This lite ankle brace is simple to strap on in just a moment, and provides a customized fit for every user. The wearer simply places the heel of the foot on top of the center connecting piece, lifts the two sides so they encase the ankle, and fastens the two straps so the brace holds the ankle in snug and supported comfort.
  • This Air Lite brace can be worn all day, or simply donned on occasions that might cause undue stress on a recovering ankle.
  •  The hard plastic shells provide far more stability than a simple fabric brace, and at the same time is less cumbersome than a full walking cast.

What Buyers Don’t Like About the Air Lite Ankle Brace

This light version of the hard sided ankle brace includes less air cushioning than the more robust models, but wearers appreciate the slimmer profile and the ability to wear the brace with any type of shoe.

Some users actually purchase both types of brace (the slimmer lite version and a more robustly padded model) in order to give themselves options depending on what shoes they intend to wear, and what activities they plan to engage in.


The Air Lite Ankle Brace is a streamlined and slim ankle brace that provides a maximum of support without adding bulk to the ankle itself. It is a highly affordable brace and can be worn continually, with every type of shoe. Please use our live chat at Discount Medical Supplies and speak to a doctor or staff member that can help you choose the right Orthopedic Support for you.
